Although their specifications are similar to those of desktop Deskstars, CinemaStars will only be available with 8MB of cache. Their seek times are close to 65% slower than those of the Deskstars, as well. Those slower seek times could help the drives achieve what Hitachi claims are silent seek acoustics, though. The drives also boast lower idle power consumption and are optimized for warmer environments like cramped home theater PCs. CinemaStars are expected in the third quarter of this year, likely in the same time frame as their Deskstar siblings. Thanks to DailyTech for the tip.
